Cricket is all glamorous and extravagant, but at the end of the day, it all comes down to fine margins. There’s a fine line between a six and a four, a run-out and a not-out, a no-ball and a fair ball. It’s the same with self conduct. There’s a fine line between flamboyance and folly. Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul learnt it the hard way a month or two ago.
The course of action which follows is well popular. The two were dropped from the side, their actions were scrutinised and criticised by the general public, followed by the CoA indecision and the matter being handed over to an ombudsman.
The verdict has finally been realised. The BCCI ombudsman D. K. Jain has penalised the two cricketers with a fine of 20 lakhs each. 10 lakhs of it will be provided to the widows of paramilitary officers who had lost their life on duty. The other 10 to be provided to the Cricket Association of blind cricket. Both, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya, are a part of India’s World Cup squad.
